Families Wanted Immediately for National Disney Parks Commercial


You don’t need to be an underachiever or a United States Governor to know that there is simply no better way to kick off a new year by blowing off work and a decent public education by heading off to the Walt Disney World Resort for a week and now is your opportunity, should you qualify.

In order to qualify for this exciting opportunity, you must:

  • Be a family of four (two parents, two children — no more, no less, for legal reasons)
  • Be in the New York City area on January 4 for in-person callbacks

Speculation: Disney Vacation Club Planning to Make Mineral King Ski Resort Finally Happen?

Note/Warning: This article makes a lot of assumptions based on very little evidence and has little basis in reality. Should you choose to continue on, you will be obligated to take it with a grain of salt.

Granted the vague domain name and the fact that domain names are reasonably inexpensive to register — not to mention it’s just the one so far — so let this is your first indication that there’s nothing to be excited about quite yet.
